People-oriented, a fast and exciting read, this book tells it straight: how to make the time you spend at work - which is most of your time- the best of all possible worlds. Sensitive to people and human nature, Dr.Puder York's book is one I recomend to all. You will too once you've had the joy of reading it yourself.
